Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What is the ratio of posters to lurkers here ?

I mostly lurk, only because it seems to me every rock has been turned over about this band. I will post when I think of something to ask about, but then I am sure it has already been discussed earlier. I try to ignore all the political stuff, (my bohemian grove comment ignited a tense discussion that goes nowhere)so its a waste of time. The trolls are just that, so enough about them. Some of you blow my mind about your knowledge of this band and that's why I keep coming back. Just like the music, I just can't get enough. Peace.

Well, Turnphilup, the questions may have been asked before but since the Forum's denziens keep changing so too do the answers to subjective questions. I would say the roster here is very different now, as far as who contributes how much, than it was when I got here (right before the Thanksgiving Week Massacre).

So, I would encourage lurkers not to be shy about asking a question for fear that it is stupid. (If you do happen to ask a REALLY stupid question, there are plenty here who will point it out so that you don't make that mistake again.)

TOOTMO , I know I could go back in check old posts , but What happened over the Thanksgiving Week Massacre ? Links or a brief synopsis would be much appreciated .
Checking other people's posts , when not directed , makes me feel like I'm going through their underwear drawer

Micah,
This URL will give you a feel for what was going on. Though, I believe there are other threads from around this time period that may even have more detail. It was HUGE deal at the time. There was talk of petitions, boycotts, etc.

Kind of interesting to look at some of the names on the thread and to realize how much this Forum has changed over.

If you have further questions about the Day the Music Died, you might direct them to Dire, Tell, Arb, Rob, etc., I was still gettin' my ears wet here, so to speak.

Oh Lord, what a mess that was...

I was so pissed, I had finally gone from dialup to DSL just after Halloween and was just starting to really get my hands dirty when they pulled everything. Of course I've since discovered torrenting and have everything and more than can be found here. Though funny enough I probably stream from here about as equally if not more often than I pull out my torrented sources.

It sure is nice to still be able to download Phil's stuff on here.

Remember that there were several other threads going. Probably one of the highest traffic periods for the LIA.
